From the vibrant cities to gorgeous scenery, this tour visits Northern Europe’s fascinating capitals— Copenhagen, Oslo, Stockholm, and Helsinki—and St. Petersburg. In each city, you’ll experience guided sightseeing of the must-see sights, including Copenhagen's Little Mermaid statue and the Royal Reception Rooms at Christiansborg Palace, used by the Queen for official occasions; Oslo's City Hall, decorated with great Norwegian art from 1900 to 1950, and Frogner Park, where Gustav Vigeland created over 200 extraordinary bronze and granite sculptures; Stockholm's City Hall, where the Nobel Prize banquet is held each year; Helsinki’s Lutheran Cathedral, completed in 1852, and the famous open-air market; and St. Petersburg’s Hermitage Museum, with one of the world’s finest art collections, plus magnificent St. Isaac's Cathedral.
A tour highlight is an overnight Baltic Sea cruise from Stockholm to Helsinki. You'll stay in first-class, outside, two-berth cabins with private facilities, and you'll enjoy a special Smörgåsbord dinner on board. This is just one of the out-of-the-ordinary experiences Globus includes to make your vacation unique. Other special treats are a Swedish food experience, where you can sample local specialties at some of the stalls in Gothenburg's indoor food market, and a Russian specialty dinner in St. Petersburg.
